Winemaker Notes

Dark and deep red with violet nuances. Very elegant, complex, great character of pure Carmenere, plenty of blueberries, black cherries and violets. Great structure, mouth filling, mineral, sweet tannins, graphite, powerful as delicate, with lots of fruit giving a long finish.

Wine & Spirits
Ignacio Recabarren selects Terrunyo from a terrace on the north bank of the Rapel River, blending it with 14 percent cabernet sauvignon from old vines on a high terrace above the Maipo River in Pirque. His 2011 is filled with flavors of blueberries and red plums, integrating the spice and herb notes of the variety into delicate details over the fruit. Firm and muscular, the wine is shaped by the unusually cold vintage in Peumo, which provides an acidity that practically vibrates over the tongue. Cellar it to eventually decant for braised lamb.

A superior Carmenere by any measure, the 2011 Concha y Toro Terrunyo Block 27 is a wine that clearly defines the varietal. Medium ruby color, racy red currant and delicate sage-like aromas, seems quite on point for the varietal, excellent depth and persistence; medium bodied, perky and bright on the palate, fine structure; dry, nice acidity, well balanced; brisk red fruit flavors, long finish, fresh and frisky aftertaste. (Tasted: June 1, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Terrunyo Carmenere is from the Peumo appellation within the Cachapoal Valley, spiced up with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon from Puente Alto. It’s an ultra-dark, almost black-colored wine with a very showy nose of mint, raspberry leaves, creme de cassis, dark chocolate and a mineral, graphite, crushed rock feeling. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with glossy, saturated, grassy tannins with low-ish acidity...A powerful, ripe Carmenere that should age well in bottle at a very good price for the quality.

Wine Enthusiast
Electric purple in color, it conveys wiry aromas of wet dog, green herbs and berry fruits. The palate is loud and clacky, with a jumpy overall feel and an overriding sense of youth. Boysenberry, blueberry and blackberry flavors come with undertones of green herbs and licorice, while the finish is aggressive and moderately complex. Drink through 2019.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A ripe, rich, full-bodied red, with a core of muscular dark fruit and spice flavors. Shows intense notes of black olive midpalate. The finish lingers with hints of smoke and a lush creaminess to the dark chocolate accents.

Inspired by a drive to highlight Chile’s most celebrated terroirs in a collection of varietal wines whose quality and finesse echo that of the world’s finest wines, Terrunyo wines are crafted with a philosophy of terroir in mind. Named for terruño, the Spanish word for terroir, each Terrunyo wine begins with hand-harvested fruit. A micro-climate, the chosen grape stock, a select piece of soil and an expert hand interact, creating perfect harmony and delivering unrivaled quality.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
